Solon worries on Senator's Ex-Paramour Safety

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

DAGUPAN CITY - A Pangasinan congressman manifested to his colleagues the safety of a former lover of Senator Leila de Lima who was arrested recently.
SAFETY. Pangasinan congressman Leopoldo Bataoil (2nd District) appealed to national police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa to take custody of arrested former driver and body guard Ronnie Dayan when  he (Dayan)  told a congressional hearing that he had personal knowledge about the eight  million pesos given by dangerous drug lord Kerwin Espinosa to Dayan’s former mistress then Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.

Ronnie Dayan, charged for contempt of Congress for failure to attend its hearing, was arrested last November 22 at Sitio Bato, Barangay Lacong at San Gabriel town in La Union.
“Being the father of the Second District, I feel that I am responsible for his safety including that of his family. And it is important that he is kept alive so that his testimony for whatever purposes is seen necessary be put to good use,” Representative Leopoldo Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) stressed.
Dayan told the members of the Committee on Justice and Human Rights how he received eight millions  pesos of narcotic monies from drug lord Kerwin Espinosa and how he slapped then Justice Secretary de Lima upon hearing she had promiscuous relationship with former Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) motorcycle traffic enforcer’s Warren Cristobal.
"[N]agkakalabuan na kami ni ma'am. Kesyo hindi na daw kami masaya sa pagsasama naming (sic), lagi kasing bangayan, at laging nag-aaway kami," Dayan told the congressmen who relished the revelation.

I lost my watch in a Davao City’s taxi

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

At 1:10 pm recently, I was inside a Davao City’s taxi bound for meeting with friends at a coffee shop near Ateneo de Davao University (ADDU).
“The text message was not complete. It should be MTS (Matina Times Square) near ADDU-High School,” I told the taxi driver when I hailed him for the correct destination.
The Maro taxi where I lost my Rudy Project's sports watch.

As we drove to MTS, Edwin, the driver, told me that he came from Barangay Kalaisan, Kidapawan City a neighboring village of Barangay Calunasan of my town Mlang, Cotabato Province.
As we conversed I felt the rubber strap of my Rudy Project’s watch was wet after I rinsed my face at the rest room of Aldavinco Market near ADDU.
I unstrapped my watch and put it on the upper part of my knapsack I was carrying on my laps in the front seat of the cab.
“This is quite a spacious car. Is this Toyota?” I posed.
“Yes sir, Vios 2016 model,” Edwin, who is the son of the former Barangay Captain of Barangay Kalaisan, said.
 I told him that my brother has a rubber plantation in Barangay Calunasan near his village.
When we reached the coffee house I thanked him and fished out P100 bill when I saw P75 appeared on the taxi meter.
“Kini ang bayad, sa imuha na kanang kambio (Here’s the P100, the loose change is yours),” I said in Visaya.
When I settled with my friends at the table of the coffee house, I noticed, son of a gun, my sports watch ain’t on my left wrist.
“I knew it  fell inside the taxi,” I told them as I lost hope I could no longer recover it just like what happened when one left his precious stuff in a Manila taxi.
